3Rs of Cleaning

Maybe it’s because we have so many school clients, but in cleaning there are three ingredients that combine to make a sustainable cleaning contract – the 3Rs

Realism

We all know the saying: “If it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is”

Well it’s no different in school cleaning and, to be honest, we’d rather not win your contract if it means losing it again a few months later because we under-priced and can’t deliver on our promises.

So we’ll discuss your needs with you and tell you in our honest opinion what it will realistically take to maintain your school to the cleaning standard you require – hours, cleaner pay rates, equipment, contract management. We’re happy to share our transparent pricing model with you.

Responsibility

As the senior team at a school, one of your primary obligations will be to maintain a safe and hygienic environment in which students can learn and staff can work.

That’s where Vervia come in. Whether it’s vetting, safeguarding, health and safety, or building security, we will provide the evidence to show that you have met your responsibilities in these areas.

We’ll also demonstrate compliance with the terms of our contract by sharing with you information from our staff attendance and quality monitoring systems.

Responsiveness

Staff illness and absence happens in cleaning, just like in any other industry. That means we need a system for providing cover. Others may tell you that when someone’s ill, another cleaner in the team will cover their area. On occasion it may happen, but many cleaners aren’t able to work longer than planned because, like other people, they have their own responsibilities, like going home and cooking their own kids’ dinner. What often happens is that the area doesn’t cleaned in full, or at all.

At Vervia, we recognise that the only realistic way to cover is to have mobile cleaners in vans, ready to drive to your school and cover. This is the only way for us to maintain our 100% guarantee of keeping your building clean. Because the mobile cleaner isn’t necessarily close by, it can sometimes take a while to get there. Which is why we ask clients to let us be a key holder.

Responsiveness also means being able to support your after-school events or cleaning that coffee spill on your reception carpet in time for a parents evening. At Vervia we can schedule that quickly for you. It’s those mobile cleaners again! They come in useful.

Staff illness and absence happens in cleaning, just like in any other industry (there goes that realism thing again). That means we need a system for providing cover. Others may tell you that when someone’s ill, another cleaner in the team will cover their area. We’ve never quite understood how that works, especially in schools. Most cleaners aren’t able to work longer than planned because, like other people, they have their own responsibilities, like going home and cooking their own kids’ dinner. What really happens is the area doesn’t cleaned in full, or at all.
